Second round of pilot courses successfully closed

Retention throughout the second round of pilot courses was again high, despite the fact that both of them started during summer: 764 users started the Future Classroom Scenarios (FCS) course, and approximately 37% finished successfully. Similarly, 40% of the 456 people who started the Innovative practices for engaging STEM teaching course completed it. Module completion rate was between 73% (final assessment) and 92% for the FCS course and between 70% and 92% for the STEM course.
Participants in both courses were again satisfied with almost 80% of the FCS course evaluation survey respondents rating it as “very good”.

“I found new abilities to develop my work with students...I am braver to inspire students to live real life on lessons, to be themselves and to learn effectively at the same time...”

“All information was very clear and enjoyable. I could follow the course according to my personal pace. I found very interesting and useful to share experiences, thoughts and materials with so many colleagues from many countries”.

Almost 56% of the STEM course evaluation survey respondents have rated it as “very good” and an additional 42% as “good”. The feedback was also very positive about the experience of participating in the course.

“It has been a real pleasure and a very enriching experience to have shared 9 weeks of fruitful exchanges and mutual learning. I enjoyed the second module "Original STEM teaching practices in the classroom" and the forum section. I wish to continue exchanging resources, tips and innovative ideas for an engaging STEM teaching.”

“I have improved knowledge of the English language and received new materials, new pedagogical approaches and inspiration to motivate students in the career perspectives of occupational choices related to STEM subjects. Very useful section Optional Materials”.
